Countdown to Christmas
Do you realize that it's just 6 weeks until Christmas??? Whew! I'm certainly not ready. Not emotionally ready, not to mention actually doing anything about it yet. But I did manage to make a couple of things that are a little Christmas-y. This Flurry apron is kind of cute (please don't look at the model). And easy too. Only one fat quarter and some yardage for the pocket, waistband and ties. A half yard of each and about an hour made 2 aprons. Easy peasy.
And I managed to make another of my 1-hour FQ Totes. This is the last of the Pink Dazzle I bought at Sewing Summit. I have one FQ left, so maybe I can find something fun to do with it. I'm not too sure about the practicality of a basically white tote, but I really like it, especially for winter.
Isn't this fabric fun?
And check out the inside. I probably wouldn't have used these together if they hadn't been all that was left, but I really like it. It gives it such a fun feel.
So, two gifts, less than an hour apiece.
Maybe I can get Christmas under control after all.
